The JFG’s Social for Members was held on July 17 in the East Ballroom of MountainView. Hors d’oeuvres were served which were delicious; tables had been set up so people were able to sit comfortably and schmooze. We all enjoyed cooling off from the heat and socializing although a bit of wine did heat some of us up a bit!

Thanks to Margie Baron, Diane Korn and Patti Reingold for hosting the Ladies’ coffee in July. A lovely time was had by all who attended.

The upcoming Ladies’ Coffee will be hosted by Ellie Adelman and Jane Urowitz at Ellie’s home, 36500 S Rockcrest Dr on Friday, August 16. Please RSVP to Ellie at [email protected].
